Mario Kart Wii

mario kart wiiMario Kart Wii is the eighth installment of the Mario Kart series. Just as every Mario Kart game, Mario Kart Wii includes new features such as new race courses, along with older ones that appeared in past Mario Kart games. New items and characters were included, as well as an increased number of players for the races. 

Mario Kart Wii also introduced the use of bikes that vary in capabilities along with the classical karts. Game modes are also present such as the Grand Prix, Versus, Battle and Time Trial, many of them making use of the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection for worldwide online play.

A Wii Wheel, designed from the ground up for the Wii, is included in every Mario Kart Wii's package because Nintendo aimed that it would make it a more realistic steering experience.

Mario Kart Wii unlike the preceding Mario Kart games, has twelve players present in normal races. All 12 racers head to the finish in a multi-lap race around a given circuit. Along the way, players may employ items, utilize techniques, and take shortcuts to earn first place.
